I spent the weekend framing a few of my original photographs/artwork for the soon-to-open Pink Home Shop and I thought all of you might enjoy a sneak preview. Bear in mind these are just quick photos I snapped to show all of you. I'll be selling many prints unframed in various sizes, but there were some photos I just felt like I wanted to put my own touches on ~ I had an image in my head of how they should be framed and I wanted to offer people the chance to buy some ready to hang.
The two flowers above are actually digital paintings I created from two photographs I took ~ they are 8x10 prints in 11x14 frames. I love how they came out. I chose beautiful white beadboard frames that really set off the artwork. For the antiqued yellow rose below, which is a 5x7 print, I chose a soft green mat and a creamy frame with a little bit of gold to set it off. Click on each photo to enlarge.
You can see a grouping of some other art in the photo at the bottom. I need to re-mat a slightly smaller print of the bee photo, but it will still go in that frame. And I decided the little creamer pitcher was better as a piece to sit on top of a desk or shelf or mantel, hence the easel. The square pink rose photograph ~ titled Pink in Bloom ~ really looks wonderful in that dramatic setting. All of these, naturally, look much better in person. I framed a few others, too, but you'll have to check those out in the shop when it opens.

Wishing all of you a lovely week full of beauty...
